Statement from the University of Pittsburgh
The University is aware of a faculty member using inappropriate and offensive language during a class. The faculty member’s comments stand in direct opposition to our values and the appropriate University’s offices have engaged with both the faculty member and students. As a university, we remain steadfastly committed to creating an inclusive environment that allows everyone to succeed and events like this underscore how important this work continues to be. We encourage the Pitt community to report incidents like these so the university can assess the situation and promptly respond.
